When I open the invoice, it doesn't show the achieved grade. You have to click on the little eye icon next to the issue. Then it opens up the grade.

In case you al are a wondering...
Darryl just shot me an email saying that they are about 10 weeks behind on entering submissions as "received".
So if you shipped an order in and your tracking shows the books arrived and were delivered to CBCS on August 1st. Add 10 weeks to that date before expecting to see them as "received" in your dashboard.
Of course that could grow to 12 weeks if we keep shipping them books....
Then the 22+ week wait for grading and labels etc.... Check me on the math, but a minimum of 10 weeks before "received", then 22+ weeks TAT...= 32+ weeks from the time the books hit the doorsteps of CBCS.
That's a mere 8 month TAT.....

@Nearmint67 That is incorrect. The turnaround time starts when the books are delivered to CBCS, not after the books show as received on your dashboard.

In the past that it would’ve been the case to start turnaround after the dashboard update but that was when books showed as received within a day or two of delivery.

@Nearmint67 - Definitely NOT correct. As @Dielinfinite said. While the dashboard data entry may be 10 weeks behind, the Estimated TAT starts a day or two after package is received by CBCS or in the case of signing event after received back by the talent signing the comic.

Where are the official TAT estimates kept? The numbers on https://www.cbcscomics.com/estimated-turnaround-times have not changed in months, and definitely do not seem correct based on the comments posted on this board. They seem to be way too low.

It no longer matters when the books are received when the estimated time frame keeps shifting. My order was received/posted April 20th and is now on its 26th week, up from its original 17+ 1 week for VSP. It may take another 5-10 weeks to be completed or be completed tomorrow, but it no longer matters when CBCS received my order.

@Buckets - is there any press in your submission? Also your TAT clock starting a day or 2 should be 4/22 and that would put you at 25 weeks three days from now on Thursday 14th.

So with 1-2 weeks for VSP and if there was no press, then you are about 7 weeks beyond estimate. Hopefully they get on the other side soon.

My oldest submission was delivered end of March, received in May 7th and billed that day. Modern tier, no pressing, just grading. So 25 weeks and still not moved out of the "Processing" category

I emailed them after sending my comics (and before they even received them) to add pressing to 2 of my comics too. Darryl told me in his response that he added pressing to my order. My order has now been graded and shipped back to Canada.... without any pressing having been carried out. Don't believe anything they tell you in emails.

@Scifinator - My invoice states Apr 20, 2021 5:56 PM and no pressing on this order.

The books have been in labels for months with no movement and no communication.

I have reached out on a couple of occasions and was told "a couple of more weeks" each time.

Not upset but just want to give everyone a clearer picture on those outdated TAT estimates.

@Buckets - so, if it has been in Labels for over a month, that is good to know as grading has been completed so the log jams are in the data entry for the external dashboard which we see and the post grading Labels-Shipping zone. On the bright side, these are areas that are most likely to benefit from their recent hiring so perhaps the pendulum swings back in the right direction this quarter.

Anyone familiar with the 2 day modern turnaround times? I plan on sending my first submission next week and am going to use that tier however if its really bad I might just use cgc since its only 6 weeks behind now.

If the viagra is working you should be well over a 9.8. xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
@Slurpin I got back a 2-Day order with pressing maybe 10 days ago. It got to CBCS in late August, so call it 5 weeks roughly. If you aren't pressing I would guess 1-2 weeks.

I've been in labels for about two months now. Hopefully that's the longest they are in there before they ship out.

@Scifinator
So if books are delivered on November 1st. And with current TAT approx. 22+ weeks. Books should be returned to us by mid April... Is that about right? Barring no changes to current pace...

If I understand TAT correctly TAT only includes business days. Weekends and holidays will push it even further.

That is how to calculate CGC when they say 109 days. With CBCS, 19 weeks is 19 weeks

@Bronte, @Cardzguy is on the right track. 100 days for cgc is business days. The estimated TAT for CBCS is actual weeks. Though, I would suggest that the last Thanksgiving and the last week of the year would likely add 1/2 to 1 week to the estimated TAT.

@Nearmint67 - With the estimated TAT's for the lower tiers at 17 to 19 weeks, adding two weeks for delivery back & forth plus the yearend holidays coming, I might think beginning March to mid March.

@jibautolycus I'm going to be in the same boat. I'm moving in February and at their current rate I'll be lucky to see my books by March or April. I haven't gotten an email response in over a month and I'm going on 8 weeks since they've supposedly been delivered, so I don't know what to do.

@Nearmint67 I wouldn't count on any estimates right now. Most people here are experiencing 8-10 weeks before books are even checked in, and another 20+ weeks in processing, and 8+ weeks in labels. So whatever estimate TATs are on the site are pure fiction at this point. Regular modern tier submissions could be held indefinitely if people keep submitting fast pass or 2-day moderns.

Beckett and most other card grading sites shut down their lower tier services. How high do TATs need to be for CBCS to do the same? 32 weeks? 52?

I have about 30 comics I would like to send in right now but am holding off as I am in the military and may be getting posted next summer. If changing my address on the invoice is as hard as adding pressing once submitted, I have no faith in them to actually make the change even if they say they did. This kind of limits me to submitting only in the spring when I find out if I'm posted or not every year. As any other time during the year I cannot take the risk of them taking too long to come back and me having been posted in the meantime.

@supertom - That's some fake news hyperbole there. While the modern, expanded, and consumer estimated TAT's may exceed 17-19 weeks it is definitely not taking 36-38 weeks.

@Scifinator No. No. I know you really want to make me out as some troll but I’m just actually reading the posts on the last few pages of this forum.

@xtraplayer Said as of 5 days ago his March order is being slabbed. 30-34 weeks and counting.

@TheMadTitan Stated his books were received on May 5th. Even assuming he means delivered, that’s 22 weeks and counting.

@Spidey62 22 weeks and counting not including time to mark books as received

@timberghost is at 28 weeks and counting

@Nearmint67 23 weeks and counting plus time it took to mark as “received”.

If anyone who’s actually received their books back can please tell me what their actual TAT was I’ll gladly eat my words. But going off the available information they’re nowhere near 17-19 weeks.
